1  Resident Creators / Squinge's Mods / Throw up interaction enabled on: May 22, 2006, 12:55:11 am
The only thing this mod does is make that action available for us to have sims do it nothing should conflict with it other than maybe some toilet mod.

The only one I know of that this would conflict with is "The Grand Trianon Collection" at MTS2. It has the throw up interaction enabled on the toilets.

Hehe Jorenne, better late than never Wink

At this point you must have the semester tester in order for the college clock to run so they age, and they will not age unless they got to finals and have a good grade because the current version of 'Teens age to YA no college' still requires they go to class (but they can't), and if they do not pass they will get academic probation. The 'college interactions on any lot' simply allows them to do this without failing each semester since they can go to class and do assignments, research, and term papers.

So, there are a couple of ways to do this.

1) Use the educational adjuster to adjust their grade to where you want it and just don't let them go to class, and they can skip finals and still get a B+ for a grade if you take them up to 1,000 points (A+) on their grade level. You can leave the semester tester "class start" off or on as long as you want and they can go to work and not age, or you can let them age the whole time but they still have to have a good enough grade to age to keep from getting booted from school if you want them to move on to the next level. They will age to adult when they graduate. I have not tried letting them skip the "final" final, so I am not sure what that will do.

2) Don't use the semester tester at all and just let them skip class and then age them manually when you want to grow them up.

I am sure Squinge will eventually be able to make it work so they don't have to go to class, but this seems like it must be a hard one. I know nothing about making mods, but this one must be a real beast!

I love this hack! Cheesy

This is working great with only a base neighborhood. The call comes the night following a "great" or "dream" date. This is a needed fix, indeed. Thanks for this!

Ozzucay is right about that Smiley, also you can enable testing cheats and then spawn the sim modder by shift-clicking on your sim. That has the option to add want slots, and re-roll LTW as well.

They are random, like all the other LTW. All LTW stay the same with a sim until they:

1.reach their current one, then it will give them a new one
2.grow up from a child to a teen
3.or if you make a new sim.

Also, these new ones only appear for certain aspirations. Like Ecological Guru and Cult Leader will show up for Knowledge sims, Cult Leader will also show up for Popularity, etc.

Hmm..  I have a question..  Greeted visitor will be set to sleepover status automaticly IF we PUT this thing on lot , If we DID'NT put this thing on our lot..  Visitor will be just like visitor (They're not set to sleepover status)..  Is it right? corrct me if I wrong..

From my experience with it, yes this is the case. If you have no sign, or disable the visitor option, then nothing will happen. Smiley

The sims - for they were at least three, two in one household (when they ended up continously blank I removed the mod) and one in another - where all Family sims. I have to admit that I rarely play any other aspiration type for very long. ^~^;;

Squinge is having trouble accessing the site right now, but will answer when he can get on again.

I like playing knowledge sims myself :mrgreen:

ok, beds work perfectly...but i've got some problems with hottubs...they don't stay in for more than a few seconds, so I can't do any interaction there! Sad

Hi Drusilla and IcemanTO, Squinge is having problems accessing the Insinenator site right now, but will answer as soon as he can get back on. Smiley

I just posted a new version that should prevent sims from aging to adults on community lots.

Works perfectly! Thank for the fix Smiley

going to test it now and see the difference...also I want to see how it affects Uni lots - dorms in particular.

This is working great for me, and I still have the old version of the visitors hack. They are bathing on residential and business lots. I will try the other visitor one, too., but so far I really like how these hacks work together.

Here's an odd one.  Something you might want to look at, but someone noted that if you have YA's living on a normal residential lot, and a legitimate university student returns home from college to that same lot, ALL young adults on that lot are subsequently aged into adults.

Is this Inteen related? I tested it by moving a legitimate college student into his friend's house in the base hood after he graduated, and the YA stayed a YA. I am trying it with another family, one who I had move to a Greek house from the base hood. The younger brother is about to go to college at home, so I will move the older one back in when he graduates to see if it is a family thing.


I thought the YA aging when they visited a community lot might have been due to the fact that I had no college subhood at the time. That was not the case. I tried it with Uni students, too, and they all grew up every time. Community lots in a Uni hood are fine. I did successfuly move a student from the base hood to a Greek house, as you see, but it caused his motives to be static until I changed them to dynamic. That was kind of weird. Also, it had to be done by the Greek house members since college interactions are not available on phones in the base hood. Also, upon returning to the lot after the student moves there, the Semester Tester will cause an error due to the missing student. So I guess it needs to be deleted or class ended before letting them move to a Uni lot. The other good news is that base hood YA show up at Uni community lots on their own, and are listed in the campus directory. Uni students that visit base hood students will do assignments and research autonomously, and it shows up in their grade bar. The same goes for base hood students visiting Uni lots.

I am going to try sending a non-YA to a non-Uni community lot and invite a YA and see if they grow up when not selectable. The other move-back-in to test the aging problem may take a day or two because the teen still has 7 days before his birthday, and the YA is in his freshman year still. I am playing it all legit, just to make sure I don't bugger things up.

Edit: Inviting them to any community lot causes no problems - they even do their assignments, so it is only when they are selectable, I guess....unless someone from the same household invites them, then they become selectable at the lot and do not age - so it only seems to be when the lot is loaded and they are the ones arriving first.

Also, if the other aging problem is Inteen related, I will install it in this test hood and check it out.

This is working very well, and made the restaurant much easier to deal with. As far as retail, it is still a challenge to sell things that are expensive and above price-wise, so that is good.

Yaay! This is way too cool! Just before the end of the first semester of his senior year, I got the "Tank will grow up in just two days" message...that kind of worried me since there were 3 days in the final semester. Well, he went through the first day and I got the 1 day notice, and for the next 24 sim hours he had the option to blow out candles on a standard Maxis cake. He didn't grow up, at least not yet. I had to tell him to go to his final exam for the last semester, but when he returned, he aged into an adult, has all six want slots, graduated with honors and got a diploma to boot. All the correct memories are there, as well. How cool is that? It was really hard being patient at times because I played the lot as clean as I could (sometimes it is so hard not to cheat!), and he still managed to graduate while holding down a full time job in the military career. I only stopped the college clock 2 times, and only because finals were scheduled when he was supposed to be at work.

This one is definitely a success as far as the home college education goes - just the community lot thing as far as bugs go, from what I can tell.
